NOTE. Next Wednesday is CHRISTMAS EVE so this weeks auction will finish on TUESDAY 23rd @ at 17.57 live conclusion as always

Let’s not make any bones about it. This is the RAREST USA Northern Soul 45 we have listed this year!

A Chicago endangered species of the highest order - debuting these pages and possibly (although records only go back 15 years) our first copy in memory. Today we are unashamedly delighted to be able to offer this RAREST OF THE RARE mid-tempo excellence in truly immaculate condition.

So go googl, to verify this discs extreme elusiveness.

Then click the soundfile to immerse yourself in a finely crafted real-deal Soul that very few can boast of owning! A magnificent tune that will pleasure those of you into both Soulful Crossover and legitimate Northern Soul; as those horns echo the streets of the Windy City but also remind you of the truly great mid-tempo rarities like Chuck Holliday, George Lemons, George Hobson etc. The stand alone male artist ,who clings onto not one commercial note during an on-his-knees delivery bristling with street-corner qualities.

UNICORN RARE!

Deep Soul aficionados check out the heartbreaking flip side, again dressed in all the above qualities.

Felix Harris Walkin' (in The Night)

NOTE. Next Wednesday is CHRISTMAS EVE so this weeks auction will finish on TUESDAY 23rd @ at 17.57 live conclusion as always

Insanely RARE - impressively DIFFERENT!

Spun by two TOP Rare Soul Jocks Dave Ripolles & Mister Fish at Barcelona December weekender… This is gonna be HOT!

An intriguing blend of expressive Soul woven into a mix of Funky guitar riffs and shrill Sisters wailing out the chorus as Felix Harris’s sulking vocal pilots this Off-The-Wall into your head.

In the search for the RARE, THE DISTINCTIVE, THE ADDICTIVE you will find this session creeping under your skin.

What you will not find is this disc in the “wild” - it is insanely elusive..

One for the DJ who likes to break up new ground…like Mr. Ripolles & Steve The Fish so often do!

Life Tell Me Why

NOTE. Next Wednesday is CHRISTMAS EVE so this weeks auction will finish on TUESDAY 23rd @ at 17.57 live conclusion as always

This week I was browsinbg through the early first 100 or so Blues & Soul magazines and a young DJ’s name kept appearing, Jocking alongside Colin Curtis & Ian Levine at the Leicester events..

Before you today is one of the reasons Paul Rudzitis graced the turntables along with those Blackpool Mecca Gods.

He was the first person I heard play Life - Tell Me Why - and since those halcyon apprenticeship days, I’ve hardly seen another stock copy that Paul purchased as a new release, he was so clued in..

One of the greatest tunes ever made during the 70s.. begging to replace “The Carstairs” as the evergreen “soulful” choice of spin.

This is of course the extremely rare STOCK copy!

A trophy-piece rarity

For those of you who search the world over for the very rarest variations of the real-deal Northern Soul classics. How about this head-turning Northern Quoll?

Rarer than a Hairy-Nosed Wombat and twice as good looking, sitting there in it’s orange coat with the yellow logo - boy that is a thing of beauty, especial stretched out in it’s Verve cover..

Owning this timeless “Torch” anthem is an opportunity that may only present itself this one time - 1966 original Ozzie copy - to be honest I cannot remember seeing one before…

Northern Soul collecting took to the extreme..

Jason Knight Our Love Is Getting Stronger

NOTE. Next Wednesday is CHRISTMAS EVE so this weeks auction will finish on TUESDAY 23rd @ at 17.57 live conclusion as always

Just how many man-hours has the youth of Britain spent purging the Market Stalls, Secondhand Shops, Car Boots, Moms& Pops Record Shops & Auction Houses over the last near 5 decades…well between us all absolutely Millions & millions hours of seartching.

As few Soul-Boys had access to the USA in the “early” days, it was essential in the search of Norther Soul to tip your local area upside-down. It was after all the addiction of the chase and the extremely remote chance of discovering an unknown or even better one of those British only releases that buzzed with the Northern Soul beat.

Jason Knight was one of those UK Grails that we all woke up clutching thin air after dreaming we’d found a copy in a junk shop record rack along with Jimmy Thomas, Fathers Angels, Levi Jackson & Carl Douglas - all gone as soon as we opened our eyes…

I personally working alone, I’ve never ever found any of the afore mentioned - and geez I hate to think how much time I spent trying…

Before you is a “Junkers” dream come true - a near perfect 1967 DEMO in blinding condition … I can now relax and dream on possibly attainable things like, a harem on the Isle of Mustique, a Tanker Truck of Guinness direct from Dublin, a flat six-pack for a stomach and one chin…

Jimmy Wallace I'll Be Back

NOTE. Next Wednesday is CHRISTMAS EVE so this weeks auction will finish on TUESDAY 23rd @ at 17.57 live conclusion as always

In the genre of Northern Soul Beat Ballad Heaven! Jimmy Wallace sits a the very zenith of this hugely popular style…

…little wonder really, as Philadelphia’s general of the studio console Bobby Martin flexes his remarkable skills, blending Jimmy’s sultry crooning with equally impressive horn work.

Steadily but surely Bobby ratchets up proceedings, enriching the session step by step until those horns soar high, Jimmy’s vocal trembles with emotion and those slick trumpets punctuate the moving lyrics.. then towards the end Bobby adds the final masterstroke as a vocal-group replies to Jimmy’s pleas…

IMMENSE totally IMMENSE!!

a perennial floor-packer for what seems forever.. but what also seems for ever is, the last time I saw this Northern Soul classic of classics in this format..

Quite easily it rarest design - the large logo WHITE DEMO Monarch recording press with Delta 56769 in the deadwax..

Click the soundfile and prepare to be catapulted back in time to THE CASINO at its height!

Jackey Beavers Show We're Not Too Young To Fall In Love C/w When Something Is Wrong With My Baby

The seldom seen press on Jackey Beavers own independent FIRST label, before its “Mainstream 713” release, which incidentally, is nearly as hard to acquire as that title, is ONLY available as the very rare STOCK release.

So summarizing, which ever label you try to secure this 45 on, it is gonna be one hard quest for ownership.

On Saturday I dropped this title into my DJ set announcing it as “a voice to blow you away..!” no need to add to that description as you’ll hear again on the flipside the power of Soulful spit, snarl, growl & purr crash its way into your heart - with a fabulous version of the Sam & Dave anthem

Two killer sides one very rare local FIRST PRESS - what’s not to love?

Hollidays I Lost You C/w Easy Living

NOTE. Next Wednesday is CHRISTMAS EVE so this weeks auction will finish on TUESDAY 23rd @ at 17.57 live conclusion as always

A doubly delicious dollop of Detroit - vocal-group delight from the desks of two of the Motor City’s Soul Mentors.

We lead with Tony Hester writing, arranging and producing a current Northern Soul “revival” spin that on and off over the decades has resided on the turntables of a few Top-Jocks. Today I and many others drop the needle on this, to a hugely exuberant response.

PROPER DETROIT NORTHERN SOUL utilizing the staggering lead vocal of Steve Mancha.

Flip it over for an unparalleled piece of Michigan Soul which was credited To J. J. Barnes release on the highly coveted “Rare Stamps” album, listen to “The Hollidays” stir up the emotion, again allegedly Steve Mancha on lead.

Two totally stand-out tunes on one disc - and in “dream” condition - as all of you who know about Detroit collectables, this seldom-seem disc is almost never witnessed in anything but “trashed” condition - this copy is a whisker away from Mint minus.

PS in case your wondering - this is not my DJ box copy - personally I’d never think of parting..and after listening to these two remarkable sides - we are betting, neither would you…

Lee Williams & The Cymbals I'm A Teenager C/w Girl From A Country Town

NOTE. Next Wednesday is CHRISTMAS EVE so this weeks auction will finish on TUESDAY 23rd @ at 17.57 live conclusion as always

I love all this guys work, with his equally talented backing group The Cymbals. Everything, so fluid, so slick, so tight, so darn soulful. So it comes as no surprise, that it matters not which side you drop the stylus on to, you’ll be treated to fabulously constructed vocal group Rare-Soul.

Currently both sides are receiving Northern Soul turntable time, and I’m sitting here still pondering on which side I prefer, yet again.

Let’s just say a finer double sider of this much-loved Harmony vocal genre, does not spring to mind. It is New Jersey Northern Soul crossover or if you prefer “Rare Soulful Dance” at its very finest!

Brice Coefield Ain't That Right C/w Just One More Night

NOTE. Next Wednesday is CHRISTMAS EVE so this weeks auction will finish on TUESDAY 23rd @ at 17.57 live conclusion as always

The rarely witnessed STOCK copy in utterly pristine condition..

Gaze long and hard at its beauty, then hear it’s irresistible charms.. with both sides offering Northern Soul excellence as former members of The Untouchables Gary & Chester Pipkin join forces to craft the topside - a meaty horn & vocal group H. B. Barnum guided Northern Soul dancer - one the NS Old-school have loved for decades but amazingly, a 45 that has never been bootlegged or reissued.. go figure that one?

Those of you who appreciate the finer end of Northern Soul’s Beat Ballad Heaven, the flipside will move you. The listings on You Tube have been pitched up a little, but I personally prefer the purity of the slow-drag and a pack of squealing girls lifting the session to greatness, as a sublime instrumental break grabs hold..

AWESOME mid-paced Northern Soul Bliss!

Z. Z. Hill Make Me Yours

NOTE. Next Wednesday is CHRISTMAS EVE so this weeks auction will finish on TUESDAY 23rd @ at 17.57 live conclusion as always

UK ONLY as a 45.

Exclusively lifted from his extremely rare 1969 British album Action 6004 . Why B&C decided to give this fabulously gritty male version of the Bettye Swann masterpiece, may have been down to Dave Godin’s regular Blues & Soul enthusiastic endorsements of his favourite girl recording.

Z. Z. Hill was ideally placed to add his own stamp of authority to Bettye’s young girl plea, as he must have heard it countless times on the Los Angeles Radio Stations as Bettye smashed through the R&B charts in 1967.

Whatever the reasons, this was an executive choice that nowhere else in the music world made, triggering the birth of one of the UK’s most-wanted 45s. Even more so, now as it begins to feature in quite a few of the more imaginative NS DJ sets..

This copy is FLAWLESS!

Natural Four I Thought You Were Mine C/w Hurt

NOTE. Next Wednesday is CHRISTMAS EVE so this weeks auction will finish on TUESDAY 23rd @ at 17.57 live conclusion as always

FLAWLESS! yes, an utterly FLAWLESS PROMO!

Another euphoric moment revisited from my younger days in that cosmopolitan city, Leicester, that not only has the finest curry houses on the Planet, but also in it’s day was home to some very influential Soul Boys.

The Frost Brothers, Chris & Steve, one night spun this track off the Natural Four ABC album in the very early 70s. WOW! what a tune “does it exist on a 45”.. the general opinion that night at the bar, was “no” Album track only.

The ever reliable Bob Catteneo came up with a few copies off his doorstep and it soon became a monster spin up and down the land and a very classy tune for it’s time, too.

Today, like most all of our Christmas period offerings; This 45 is in “as good as it gets” condition. Still hugging its birth-sleeve… perch to again deliver euphoric recall to those who remember its birth…

Sorry, this item has already been won!
The winning bid was £ 410.00

I was going to sell the Holidays for 300 glad I didn't, and the Jimmy Wallace would have asked 600 would be difficult to part with it was Chris Pants cover up one from years ago

 

Now now Ted  :lol:

 

Holidays is worth 3 or 400, you're right

I can't understand what's happening, I've seen copies of Jimmy Wallace and the Holidays for sale at half those prices that haven't sold in the recent past.

 

And the looney who paid silly money for the Velvet Satins last time must be wishing he had less money and more good sense now.
